Philadelphia Science Festival and La Salle University
April 24, 2012
La Salle University will be hosting one event for the second Annual Philadelphia Science Festival (PSF), and faculty and students will be participating in several events off-campus. The University is also a sponsor of the nine-day festival, April 20-29.
Chemistry Professor Dr. William Price will present, “It’s All Natural and Organic: What You Don’t Know Might Hurt You,” on Wednesday, April 25, at 3 p.m. at the University’s Holroyd Science Center.
“I’ll be exploring an organic chemist’s perspective on the realities of the ‘all-natural’ and ‘organic’ craze that has essentially demonized all things chemical, synthetic, and genetically modified,” said Price. “The range of topics includes foods, medicines, nutritional supplements and vaccines.”
